What information do we collect?

In some areas, we may ask you to register your name, email address and other personal details. We will also collect information from you if you complete any other forms on our site or if you contact us with comments or specific requests. Cookies are used within the shopping site to keep track of order details and to store delivery address information.

How we use cookies

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about webpage traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

What do we use personal information for?

If you provide personal information, we may, from time to time, contact you for fundraising or marketing purposes. We may pass your details on to third party organisations that provide services on our behalf, in the course of dealing with your request. These third parties are obliged to keep your details securely and will use them only to fulfil the request.

If you do not wish to receive fundraising or marketing communications from CPAS, please advise us by emailing

We do not sell, lease or provide personal information to third parties except to fulfil a request as outlined above.

Cookie Policy

What are Cookies?

A cookie is a small file, typically of letters and numbers, downloaded on to a device when the user accesses certain websites. Cookies allow a website to recognise a user's device.

Why do we need these rules?

The law in this area is essentially designed to protect the privacy of internet users - even where the information being collected about them is not directly personally identifiable. The changes to the Directive in 2009 were prompted in part by concerns about online tracking of individuals and the use of spyware. The rules are not designed to restrict the use of particular technologies but rather they are intended to prevent information being stored on people's computers and used to recognise them via the device they are using, without their knowledge and agreement.
The rules require websites that use cookies to first gain the user's consent.

What Cookies are you using on your site?

Business Critical Cookies

These cookies allow you to count visits and traffic sources so you can measure and improve the performance of your site. They help you to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies you will not know when a visitor has come to the site, and will not be able to monitor its performance. We use the Google Analytics service for this purpose. These cookies also cover the use of Google Maps.
